Recipe: Sweet Potato Lunch Bowl

I’m a firm believer that meals don’t have to be restricted to a typical time of day. Breakfast for dinner is delicious and who says you can’t have leftover chicken parmesan for breakfast.

It often seems that people think salads and sandwiches are the only choices for lunch.

Enter: Bowls.

“Bowls” is really just a catch-all term for a meal of miscellaneous ingredients cooked or uncooked thrown together in a bowl.

Sweet potatoes are usually my favorite carb source for a bowl. I threw this combination together earlier this week and was amazing by how filling and satisfying it was, so I had to share.

4 ingredients #simplicity

What I also love about bowls is that you can use up a few of the same ingredients, but with a few little swaps it feels like you’re having something slightly different.

Day two, a few ingredient swaps.

Here’s the recipe for the first bowl:

Ingredients

  • Sweet potato (200 grams, which is about 1 medium potato)
  • Ground turkey (2 ounces)
  • Egg white (1/2 cup)
  • Bolthouse Farms Greek Yogurt Creamy Caesar Dressing (1 Tbsp.)

30 grams of protein and about 350 calories. These are just the amounts I used (the turkey was leftover from dinner, but I wanted more protein so I added egg whites cooked in the waffle maker and it made for a great combo), but you could easily adjust them to your needs.

Here’s the recipe for the second bowl:

Ingredients

  • Sweet potato (200 grams)
  • Chicken breast, pre-cooked (3 oz.)
  • Bolthouse Farms Greek Yogurt Creamy Caesar Dressing (1 Tbsp.)
  • Spinach
  • Onion

Again, adjust the amounts to your needs!

Instructions

  1. Meal prep your protein beforehand.
  2. Parboil the potato (boil for a few minutes) then dice and bake in the oven for about 30 minutes.
  3. Assemble all ingredients! (This will vary based on what you’re including.)

That’s it! So easy, simple and adaptable.

What would you add to this bowl?
